- A: Absolutely. Anxiety (and depression) often manifests itself in physical ways--sometimes that's one of the biggest signs (or at least it was for me--when I started getting headaches every day, it was my body's way of telling me that my depression was coming on again.)Some common side effects of panic attacks/anxiety:Paresthesias (numbness/tingling sensations) in face, extremities (hands/feet), or bodyMuscle pain, especially in neck and shouldersChest pain or discomfort/feeling like your chest is 'tight'Discomfort in your stomachRapid heartbeat, pounding heart, or palpitationsAll of which you seem to have.And also:DizzinessDifficulty swallowingShakingShortness of breathDry mouthDon't worry--you don't have an aortic aneurysm; you're not dying (though one of the most common descriptions of panic attacks is feeling like you are going to die). You need anti-anxiety medication, which hopefully you will be able to get once you get medical aid.Until then, you'll have to stick to natural remedies:1. Eliminate caffeine. When you have a panic attack or panic disorder, your body is totally flooded with adrenaline; when you drink caffeine, you get even more adrenaline, which your body does NOT need.2. Take St. John's Wort, which many people use to treat anxiety.3. Exercise4. Get enough sleep if at all possible5. Avoid alcohol6. Pay attention to what you eat. For some reason, some foods can trigger panic attacks (those foods are different for everyone.) Keep a food diary, and you might see a pattern.7. Use aromatherapy to your advantage8. Take vitamins, especially Vitamin B, Magnesium, and Calcium, all of which are known to help panic disorder/attacksGood luck
- Why might my lower abdomen be pulsating or have a heart beat?
- Q: When I look this up, it keeps saying aortic abdomen aneurysm. I'm a 24 year old female who's relatively healthy... I'm assuming that's not the issue. Can stress cause this? What about starting back up an exercise program? Would abruptly stopping Nexium have anything to do with it? I'm a little scared now since the only thing I can find is related to aneurysms. Any advice would be appreciated.
- A: You are feeling the pulse from the artery running through your abdominal cavity (the abdominal aorta). If you are a thin female (which I'm guessing you are ) this is not uncommon. As for the medication - most likely not. Stress does not cause aneurysms. Aneurysms result from a weakened area in the blood vessel wall - Blood flows through this weakened area and begins to collect within the layers of the blood vessel walls - much like a balloon filling with water. As for exercise - it is always recommended that you discuss this with your doctor prior to starting one. Hope this has helped.
